Just a Thought

 

As we celebrate the Feast of the Holy Family this weekend – and look forward to 2022, it is appropriate that we reflect on ‘Who is Jesus for me?’

 

Jesus is in every face, He is every laugh and every fear.

 

Jesus is in every heart, in every Mass, in every celebration.

 

Jesus is in every person. He is in the eyes of every young child, He is in every hurt and is with those who are lonely.

 

Jesus is in every mind. He is in every new born baby and he is with those who are close to death.

 

Jesus is in every squeal of joy – He is in the beauty of nature, and he is present wherever you are.

 

Jesus is the reason why – He is my friend

 

 

 

 

 

Wishing you a Happy Christmas &

 

A Holy and Peaceful 2022

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

COVID-19 UPDATE – ST. MARY’S CHURCH, LISTOWEL

 

 

 

Following the Government announcement made on Friday, December 17th, 2021 there are no changes to the public health measures as they apply to religious services and weddings. 

 

Accordingly, religious services and weddings can proceed without capacity limits and without any time restrictions but with all other protective measures in place and these measures include, sanitising your hands on entering and leaving the church, wearing a face mask or covering while visiting the church and observing the rules of social distancing.

 

A face mask or covering should be worn by all those aged 9 or over.  People who may not be able to wear a face mask or covering for whatever reason or people who may be nervous about returning to Mass can participate in the Mass online at www.listowelparish.com.

 

A team of ushers will be on duty for all of our Masses.  The ushers are there to assist people attending Mass, to assist in the distribution of Holy Communion, to organise the exit from the church at the end of Mass and to encourage people to comply with the public health protective measures.  All of our ushers are volunteers, and we would ask people to co-operate with our ushers.  Full details of our Mass schedule, including the Christmas Mass schedule can be found in the parish newsletter available at the back of the church or on our website, www.listowelparish.com.

 

As the collection basket will not be passed around due to Covid-19, you may place your weekly and Christmas offerings in the collection boxes at the back of the church and you can also make your offerings either by card through the Parish Office, or by standing order or online.  Further details are available on the Parish website, www.listowelparish.com or by contacting the Parish Office on 068 21188.  We thank you most sincerely for your continuing support of and generosity towards your Parish and clergy.

 

Given the rapid spread of the Omicron variant we would remind all parishioners to follow the public health guidance so as to protect not only themselves but also their family members and those in the wider community.  Full details in relation to public health advice, further information and updates can be found on www.gov.ie and www.hse.ie.

‘Míle Buíochas’ Thank You – Happy New Year

 

 

 

As we bring 2021 to a close, once again, I feel very privileged and it is my honour to work with you as your Parish Priest here in Listowel. 2021 was a once again a surreal year with the Covid Pandemic continuing and even now there is no end in sight. However, we must keep going and make the best of what every day offers. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you the Parishioners, the Priests of our Pastoral Area, Fr. Martin Hegarty and Fr. Sean O Sheehy for the support that you have given to the Parish and to me personally throughout the year. It takes a lot of people to make a Parish active and to keep it going in these difficult and challenging times. It could not happen only that we are blessed with good staff, Denise (Parish Secretary) and Helen & Catherine (Sacristans) and a lot of volunteers who are dedicated to our Parish. Many of you work behind the scenes and you might feel your work sometimes goes unnoticed but each person in their own right plays their part and each does it so well. During Covid we have reduced services and committees. I wish to thank the Parish Finance Council who keeps an eye on the Parish Finances, the Parish Pastoral Council and the Safeguarding Children Committee for their support and guidance. Thanks to the Parish Liturgy Group who co-ordinate the various ministries and liturgies. The Eucharistic Ministers, our USHERS who have excelled themselves, day in day out, the lectors / readers, the collectors, the counters who count the offerings weekend after weekend, the Parish Choir, the Parish Folk Group, their members, directors and musicians. We are blessed to have Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament praying weekly in our Parish. Thank you all who make it possible. We have the Padre Pio Prayer Group who run their monthly meeting with Fr. Martin and the Legion of Mary- Unfortunately, we have not been able to avail of our Altar Servers, our Children’s Liturgy Group, Parish Baptism Team & First Friday Cuppa Ladies.  Thanks to those who clean the church - quietly all year around. Those who donate flowers and look after both inside and outside the church and Presbytery grounds throughout the year. So many visitors remark on how well each place looks. This is a tribute to you, so take a bow. To those of you who put up our Cribs and those who are available at a moment’s call to do the various maintenance jobs throughout the year.  We are dependent on each other for friendship, support and finance. Thank you for your generosity and kindness to your Parish and to me personally right throughout the year.  I pray that God will bless and reward you and your family with all his gifts this Christmas and throughout the new year of 2022.

 

God Bless                                                     Fr. Declan O’Connor P.P.

Fr Kevin McNamara, Rest in Peace December 2021

 

DEATH on Tuesday 21st December 2021, of Fr. Kevin Mc Namara of Killarney, Kerry / Cooraclare, Clare.  Son of the late Mary and Tom and survived by his sister Geraldine Condren,  his brother-in-law Dave, niece Niamh, nephew Caimin, his extended family, neighbours, the Bishop and Priests of the Diocese of Kerry, Conferees in the Missionaries of the Sacred Heart, his parishioners in Glenflesk and a wide circle of friends. Fr Kevin reposing in St. Agatha's Church, Glenflesk on Sunday 26th December 2021 from 10.00am to 12 noon and in the Church of the Assumption, Moyvane on Sunday evening from 2.00 pm to 4.00 pm. Requiem Mass on Monday, 27th December in St. Senan's Church, Cooraclare at 2.00 pm, burial afterwards in Dromelihy Cemetery

 

 

 

Bishop Ray Browne expressed the shock and sadness on the death of Fr Kevin:

 

 

 

There is widespread shock and sadness at the sudden death of Fr. Kevin McNamara, parish priest of Glenflesk. Currently he was parish priest of Glenflesk, having served previously in Kenmare, Killarney , Rathmore and Moyvane. Fr. Kevin was in hospital for a number of days, when Tuesday morning he suddenly took ill and died.  Fr Kevin was a man of huge energy and colour. We all regret his passing.  Rest in peace, Fr. Kevin.

 

 

 

Fr Kevin was born in 1955 in Cooraclare Village in Co. Clare. He was ordained as a Missionary of the Sacred Heart in 1981. He joined the diocese of Kerry in 2004 and spent a short while in Kenmare. Killarney was his next parish in July of that year. Rathmore followed in 2012 till 2015 when he moved to Moyvane. His current parish was Glenflesk. Fr. Kevin was a gifted writer and communicator. He put great work into his parish newsletters. These can be read here.

 

 

 

CHRISTMAS BLESSINGS from Fr. Kevin taken from this week’s newsletter :

 

 

 

In all this long run up to Christmas (which started back in November) in the media, I have not once

 

heard the word ‘Jesus’ or ‘Faith’ or ‘Birth’ or ‘Mary’ or ‘Joseph’. No mention at all of God-made-Man.

 

No reason given for the presents we are to buy and give, no reason for Christmas greetings and best

 

wishes (The Media say Happy Holidays – rather than Happy Christmas). It is truly amazing and equally

 

awful. Just as we, centuries ago, took over a pagan festival of winter-time and turned it into the

 

Christian Christ’s Mass to celebrate His birth, so now the secular commercial industry has taken it over,

 

lock, stock and barrel.

 

 

 

So might I suggest that you, dear reader, be sure to put Christ back into

 

Christmas by underlying His presence in your home and in your life at this marvellous time. Whether you

 

are single or married, separated or divorced, whether you have a family or not, whether you are well or

 

not, needing to be looked after – you can be sure to have Christ with you. One way of ensuring that

 

Christ is in Christmas is by the use of Blessings. The word ‘Blessing’ has two distinct but related

 

meanings. It refers to our praise of God and to our request for His loving care for us. Some people

 

mistakenly think that only a Priest can give a blessing. Some blessings are reserved to Priests in special

 

circumstances, but all of us can praise God and ask His blessings:

 

 

 

So as we journey to the 25th how about blessing your home praying:

 

“Let us pray to God for His Blessing, Father in heaven, look upon this family in Your

 

love and give us the blessings of Your joy and peace. Let Your Spirit of joy fill our

 

hearts, so that we may be holy and happy. May our concern for others reflect your

 

love and bring us happiness at this time and throughout the coming year. Amen”.

 

 

 

Many homes have a little Crib. Why not bless it:

 

“Father almighty bless this Crib that we have prepared, and let it be a reminder to

 

us of our Lord Jesus, your Son and Son of Mary. Father we praise You through the

 

Babe of Bethlehem. Amen”.

 

 

 

Bless your Christmas Tree – all the family stand around the tree:

 

“All glory and praise to you heavenly Father: We thank you for sending your Son Jesus

 

to be our Brother. Bless us as we gather here, and bless our Christmas tree. Let its

 

lights remind us of Jesus who came to be the light of the world and to save us from sin.

 

May we give presents rejoicing in the present You gave us – Jesus Your loving Son.

 

Father, we love You and we praise You through Christ our Lord. Amen”

 

May the Christ who came for us to be made holy give you and yours a Happy Christmas.

MISSION SUNDAY 24TH OCTOBER 2021 This Sunday is Mission Sunday. The body that coordinates this day has a new name ‘Missio Ireland’, to harmonise with the name in other countries worldwide. Ponder, pray about and share, our faith in the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The annual Mission collection is held worldwide to support the work of missionaries in poor and remote communities; for example, helping build vital infrastructure, churches, formation centres for religious and clergy, medical clinics and schools. The needs of overseas dioceses vary greatly.  Or more urgently, vaccinations and medicines to protect the vulnerable. Missions Sunday  envelopes are in your Parish Box and some loose ones are at the back of the church.   We thank you sincerely for your generosity to this cause. The theme this year is “We cannot remain silent – We cannot but speak about what we have seen and heard (Acts 4:20)”. Let us honour and remind the people of all the dedicated missionaries, past and present, from our own diocese.

ST. MARY’S CHURCH, LISTOWEL – COVID-19 UPDATE ON RELIGIOUS CEREMONIES

 

As and from September 6th, 2021 all religious ceremonies, including, WEEKDAY AND SUNDAY MASS, WEDDINGS, FUNERALS etc. can proceed with 50% of the church capacity, regardless of the immunity status of attendees, subject to appropriate protective measures such as, social distancing, face masks, hand sanitisation etc. Due to the current incidence rate of Covid-19 within the Diocese, the Diocesan Office has recommended the following in relation to Baptisms.

 

BAPTISMS – Let’s continue to keep numbers attending Baptisms limited to immediate family members, (including Godparents and Grandparents).

 

The Government hope to be in a position to announce  lifting further restrictions on Friday next, October 22nd, subject to the prevailing health advice. Full reopening is now in doubt because of a surge in numbers this week.  It is therefore important that all of the current protective measures continue to be observed so as to ensure that St. Mary’s Church, Listowel remains a safe place for people to visit and attend.

 

The weekly offering or donation can be made by using the designated boxes in the church or by using the online facility or by way of standing order.  Further details are available on the Parish website or by contacting the Denise in the Parish Office on 068 21188 (Monday to Friday 10.00 a.m. to 1.00 p.m. & 2.00 p.m. to 5.00 p.m.) Many thanks for your continued support and generosity.  Fr. Declan & the Parish Pastoral Council

COVID-19 UPDATE ON RELIGIOUS CEREMONIES

 

As and from September 6th, 2021 all religious ceremonies, including, WEEKDAY AND SUNDAY MASS, WEDDINGS, FUNERALS, BAPTISMS, FIRST COMMUNION AND CONFIRMATION CEREMONIES can proceed with 50% of the church capacity, regardless of the immunity status of attendees, subject to appropriate protective measures such as, social distancing, face masks, hand sanitisation etc. Due to the current incidence rate of Covid-19 within the Diocese, the Diocesan Office has recommended the following in relation to Baptisms.

 

BAPTISMS – Continue to keep numbers attending Baptisms limited to immediate family members, (including Godparents and Grandparents).

 

FIRST HOLY COMMUNIONS – Limit the numbers attending to immediate family only, namely, parents and siblings of the child and in the case of Confirmations, the sponsor of the child. The Government hope to be in a position to announce the lifting of the majority of the public health restrictions on October 22nd, 2021, subject to the prevailing health advice.  It is therefore important that all of the current protective measures continue to be observed so as to ensure that St. Mary’s Church, Listowel remains a safe place for people to visit and attend.

UPDATE COVID 19 MESSAGE FROM KERRY DIOCESAN TEAM

 

Concerning Religious ceremonies within the document “Reframing the challenge continuing our recovery and reconnecting” which outlines the Government plan for the further easing of public health restrictions over the next few weeks. It is great news that we will be able to welcome more people to our churches. The hope is that on October 22nd, 2021 the majority of all public health restrictions will be lifted, but this will be subject to the prevailing public health advice. It is therefore important that all of the current protective measures continue to be observed so as to ensure that our churches remain safe places for people to visit and attend. The incidence rate of Covid-19 within the Diocese remains a cause for concern and for that reason we recommend the following in relation to Baptisms, First Holy Communions & Confirmations: -

 

             Baptisms – Continue to keep numbers attending Baptisms limited to immediate family members, (including Godparents and Grandparents).

 

             First Holy Communion & Confirmation – Limit the numbers attending to immediate family only, namely, parents and siblings of the child.

 

We will review the above recommendations on October 22nd, 2021 should there be a further easing of the public health restrictions. As always, further updates, advice, and information can be found on www.gov.ie or HSE.IE

CHURCH MAINTENANCE UPDATE: We have had to repair the CROSS in the roof on apex over the front door of the church. The base had weakened and was damaged over the years resulting in it falling back onto the roof.  We were fortunate that the lightening conductor which was attached at the back saved it from falling off and breaking. While we had the scaffolding up for a limited period Jan availed of the opportunity of cleaning Our Lady’s statue. Our thanks also to all involved – especially Tom O’Connell and his family members and Jan for the great job that they did.

 

 

 

PASTORAL MESSAGE FROM BISHOP RAY

 

ON COVID-19: PARISH FINANCES:

 

The diocese has carried out a small survey of the returns for parish collections in the 6 months January to June 2021. In the first 6 months of this year, at all Masses it has been either a case of no congregations or congregations limited to small numbers. On average collections have reached 50% of what they were pre Covid-19. This is a good achievement. Some parishes are under greater financial pressure than others. Over the whole of 2021 I encourage everyone to seek to contribute the same amount as in a full year pre Covid.

 

A sincere thank you to every parish for the level of payments to the offertory collections during the pandemic. It is a great comfort to everyone that so many have been so loyal to parish collections.

 

Thank you to one and all for your contribution to the life of your parish over the past 18 months. May the pandemic have led to many of us appreciating our local parish community even more. Continue to look out for and support one another in the community and let us pray for one another. Our Lady health of the sick, pray for us.
